Meet the team - Adam Caffrey
We’re back again with another addition of our “meet the team” series.
Today, we’re introducing you to Adam Caffrey, part II architectural assistant here at LK2.
What made you want to go into this line of work?
I’ve always wanted to go into some form of design, as a child I enjoyed drawing cars and as I got older I began to increasingly appreciate the architecture of my hometown, Liverpool. The architecture in Liverpool forms a huge part of the city’s identity and I wanted to be involved in creating identity for places through design.
What are the best and worst parts of your job?
The best part is drawing and creating varied designs every day and it’s even better when the client is happy with the result. I’ve recently been working in the residential sector and I think there is a huge responsibility when designing clients’ homes because the project is extremely personal to them, but this makes it even more pleasing when the client is happy.
There not much I don’t enjoy about my job but I would have to say I think the admin side of the job is the worst. Although it’s an important and vital aspect of the role, I always want to spend my time sketching designs and researching materials and technology.
If you weren’t in your current role, what job would you have?
I think I’d be a chef. I love to cook, try new foods and of course eat. I think it’s quite similar to architecture, it’s quite an intensive job with long hours, but you get to be creative with what you’re doing.
If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
I would love to be able to fly, either with wings or like Superman. I would use the power for travelling; flying off to different cities and countries to explore for a weekend or a night.
What’s your favourite meal/food?
I don’t think I have one specific favourite type of food or meal, but I have really enjoyed the emergence of street food markets and venues. I love being able to try bits of different foods that are often not available in restaurants. The first time I went to a street food market was when I visited the San Miguel Market in Madrid. The market is based on authentic Spanish foods; paella, seafood and tapas style dishes and is still my favourite street food experience.
